{Before I Was Your Mom}

Today I have a mini album to share that's up on the Paper Bakery blog.
I made this for my almost 4 year old daughter. She is always asking me "Mommy, what did you like to do when you were a little girl?" She loves looking at her scrapbooks, so I thought this would be fun for us to look through together.



See the "562" numbers? That's a design on one of the Jillibean Soup papers included in the kit. The cool part...that's the area code for the city we live in, and where I grew up.







I love October Afternoon's Woodland Park miscellany pack and especially love the vintage flash cards. The super cool thing about this page...on the back of the photo of me standing by our trailer, my mom had written where we camped and the date...it was August 10, 1973!! I used the Studio Calico frame around the 10 to make sure it stood out :)
 


Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share my mini with you :)
